4 Simple Tips For Getting a Solar Installation For Your Home
Do you love the idea of saving money on utilities and doing your part to protect the environment? If you are considering a home upgrade then getting a solar system might be the right choice for you. Solar panels offer many options for homeowners, but it is important that you choose quality equipment and an experienced installation team.
Here are four easy tips to consider if you are preparing for a solar installation at your home:
- Number of Solar Panels: If you are going to spend money on solar, then it is essential to consider the amount of energy that is needed for your home. The goal is to install enough solar panels to produce sufficient electricity for your energy needs. A solar installation company will help with the evaluation of your energy usage as well as calculate how many solar panels you will need.
- Quality Equipment: Solar panels come with a 25 year manufacturer warranty. Try to choose a solar panel manufacturer that is financially strong and diversified, so they can stand behind that 25 year warranty. Some manufacturers only produce solar panels, while there are others that also make washing machines, refrigerators, tv’s, ships, cars and other electric components. The manufacturer’s that are diversified, usually have a stronger financial backing.
- Return on Investment: Look at the amount you are currently spending on electric bills, then consider the amount that you will spend to install a solar power system. With 0 down, it is common for homeowners to maintain the same monthly costs, or even be able to reduce monthly spending with solar. If you can’t pay cash up front for the system, then you should consider a financing option. There are 12 year solar loans available. You will own the system and can take advantage of the of the 30% Federal Tax Credit, while getting off the lifetime payment plan with your utility company. Once the solar system is paid in full, you’ll have access to free electricity for the life of the system.
- Professional Installation: A DIY approach just doesn’t cut it when it comes to solar installations. If you are going to invest in the equipment, then it makes sense to choose products that are built to last for many years. An experienced installation team can help you choose the right solar solutions for your home and family. They will also stand behind their installation if anything goes wrong.
